Historical Society Behind-the-Scenes Site Tours
Explore the artful blend of historic restoration and new construction at the Greenwich Historical Society’s newly reimagined site, on Sunday, Oct. 7. Two special tours of the new buildings and grounds will showcase discoveries made during the construction process including historic wallpaper, an original key for Toby’s Tavern and highlights from the Historical Society’s collection.
Director of Education Anna Greco will lead 45-minute tours of the new Library & Archives, the Gallery for Special Exhibitions, Gallery for Permanent Collections, Museum Lobby, Museum Store and Artists’ Café. Guests will have the opportunity to ask questions about the new facility, its design and construction and its significance to the organization and the community in the preservation of the town’s history.
Tours will start in the Museum Lobby at the front desk. The sessions will take place from 12:15 to 1 p.m. and 2:15 to 3 p.m. Admission is free, but please RSVP as space is limited.
